The Gothic church is dedicated to the Virgen del Milagro - it is a center of pilgrimage and devotion since its inception in 1458. Visitors can enjoy a Renaissance altarpiece of 1530, a baroque altarpiece of the eighteenth century, a stone altar of the eighteenth century and an organ of the XVI -XVII century. The Benedictine monastery from 1899 is part of the community of the monastery of Montserrat (just 75km away).
